This restaurant gave my pallet an adventure. Great service and decor and everything was delicious! Absolutely loved it and nicely located nearby Rudolfplatz in Köln.

My wife and i walked in last night. Only waited five minutes for a table. We're not familiar with South African food, but really enjoyed the tastes and mild spiciness. The food is served as tapas, and you pick how many you want up front. For us, one small (3 choices + a carb) and a medium (one more choice)... More

Really nice atmosphere, nice food with a "Communal Eating" concept to share all the dishes. All the dishes are reasonably priced and they do have some exotic cocktails to try. The service is good, flexible and fast. It really feels like a short trip to south Africa.

South African flair in food and atmosphere. Really hard to get a table last minute. Seating is very close so love your neighbor. Reservations help alot. Tiny dishes to share. Some are really excellent, some are so-so. Known for their drinks and a fun bar area.

I'm South African so I found it very comforting to have favourites from home. Really tasted authentic!

I arrived on business and spent the last day eating schnitzel and sausage, then decided to mix it up. Very friendly and attentive staff here who spoke English to me, served tasty specialty mixed cocktails, delivered good quality food at a fair price and played chilled. Lots of locals and a great way to spend a couple of hours. Don't... More

Great service, tasty food, had a great time! It's a nice concept - you can get either 7, 4, or 3 dishes out of the menu. So you can have a nice mixture of tastes - excellent idea! You can fill up nicely and the food was good! As a vegetarian I could choose out of 4 dishes, it was... More
